Dug out a drain plug to install so I won't have a bad day when I put it in on Saturday. Second coat of paint went on and cleaned her up and installed battery within the last week or so. Should be good to go. I am waiting on new spreader lights that I just ordered but that won't stop me from launching.

Got the wash down pump replaced, which required new wires back to the switch due to the previous owner using non-sealed crimps in the bilge, the wires were rotten a long way up...Then took on the seized macerator pump in the head (ugh!!!)...Then the guys from VessleClean came and made it all pretty with ceramic coating. Standing tall and waiting for me to come back from this next trip...Work gets in the way of boating too much!

I repeat, I don't like drilling holes in the bottom of my boat.

looking good! Is that a pursuit or tiara? I see a lot of similarities to my 2001 Tiara 35 open.

Mounted a new top, then mounted up a couple of horns on my new top. Worked on it for hours and only got one good blast from them. Will hack on it again tomorrow to get to the bottom of it and get them working right. The struggle is real.....

Kids are off of school tomorrow, so we are all boating. Fired up the engine (in the driveway with muffs) after a long cold winter. Thankful that spring is here.

NICE!
Renamed? What was she called before? I believe I heard of some ritual that must be followed when renaming...?

was HookedUp. As for ritual....? My Lord and Savior convicted my heart to use all thing to His glory and Honor. Matthew 6:33, will explain it better than I.
